of which i think we must respect. >> beth mendelsohn with voice of america, the afghanistan service. if one of the candidates doesn't get 50% and this goes into a second round and things get complicated there, what are the constitutional laws that are in place? can karzai call the loya jirga? and also if it goes the way some of the things did in iran, what is the united states prepared to do in these circumstances? >> rinna? >> i'd like barney to comment on this as well. if there is a security situation then there are stipulations where a loya jirga can be called. but i'd like barney to speak in more detail about this as well. >> well, i'm not sure what your question is about. according to the constitution if no one gets more than 50% of the vote, then a second round has to be held within two weeks of the date of announce mentd of the result. perhaps your question is what is -- if there is civil conflict and it is not possible to do that. we of course do not want to address hypothetical questionsb3 like that. there is an international presence in afghan government that is our partner and if
health and it is bad for the economic health of america. my husband had alzheimer's disease for 10 years, and sadly he died last year. but i had the freedom to talk to his doctor and participate in his treatment. i would lose that freedom under this bill. some panel of bureaucrats would decide what his treatment would be, and whether or not it would be cost-effective. i agree that our american health care needs reform, but we can do lots of things to improve our present health care. i don't think we need to throw out our present health care and have a whole new government system. i am totally against the government taking it over. [applause] i wanted president obama to succeed, but i am not terrified at the way -- at the direction at this country under president obama, harry reid, and nancy pelosi. they have spent billions of dollars in the last few months, and we're trillions of dollars in debt. congressman connolly, you are our representative. you represent we the people. i implore you to vote no on this bill, preserve our freedom, and prevent our country from sliding into economic rui
the worst run insurance companies in america. they predict he merged them they were poorly run and turn them into the biggest efficient. he is a doctor. he created the biggest insurance company in america for his shareholders. his stock went from nothing to being a very valuable. if you are a shareholder, you probably thought he got a lot of that out of nothing. he turned into an $80 billion company. it is nice to have shareholders who are mutual fund owners investing in united healthcare. he had a lot of stock in 1992. on paper, you can never defend anybody making a billion doctor -- dollars. it is very large, very comprehensive, and its shareholders were rewarded. it is like the government paid it. there are two sides to the story. . he created a massive company. he was in it very early. again, i'm not trying to defend him. certainly the taxpayers never paid united health care $1 billion. they are the single biggest contractor for medicare. they make on average about a 3.5% profit on their part d plan which is drugs and plan which is drugs and probably a 4% margin on their medicare advanta
pretty much 100% control of all information dissemination in america. now you have these tiny little breaches in the wall of sound with talk radio and the internet so what they want to do? shut them down. >> host: early one morning just been published you were being interviewed by howard smith on pbs and he said you talk about victims and dictum put in america but the more i listen to you i think that you are the one claiming victimhood, that you are the victim of the left-wing conspiracy and he held out his arms and said you should have across. what is howard smith struggling with? [laughter] .. how is chris werner going to get out there and heather macdonald? we have so many fantastic writers in new york, some and fantastic right wing writers and you are buying your head against the wall just to get attention for a book in even a best-selling book, even your seventh best-selling book when it's that hard for me to get on tv what does that say about the conservatives people love norma? >> host: others have said you try to be funny and he called a sophomoric sort of simplistic view of
leading the charge -- the president of the autism society of america. they have been listening to families about these issues and trying to come up with recommendations. i am sure that group would love to have an audience and get some ideas that they have been grappling with. >> you just wrote about standards. someone mentioned that you get all kinds of misinformation. you have been on this telehealth for three years now. when you mention standards, is that what you're talking about? >> absolutely. when we start our treatment program, it is a comprehensive treatment program. unfortunately, families can pop up in the internet search and tiepin -- type in telehealth treatment. i do not see how it is possible to form a true therapeutic bond and go ahead and treat the child. is very disconcerting. you can quarry pretty much anything with autism and related disorders. whether it is some way to repair your car, somebody who can paint your house, it is so sporadic. parents do not have a consistent place to ensure that they're going to receive quality care. i am encouraged that you have folks meet
he is on the right path. this is the most tragic moment we have had in the history of america, since the great depression and world war ii, and i want to be part of the team of leadership, accountable leadership leadership that says, these are the facts, and that is how you have to see it. but i want our children to be all they can be in their educational opportunity, because we need them to lead america again. health care reform is an absolute requirement. the dividend we get from it in the navy is what you see in how we accomplished our jobs. america has to have that. in our economy, it is what it is about. entrepreneurialship should be the norm, not the exception. to have all the answers? absolutely not. experience? yes, i dealt with sailors on a nuclear ship, but the average age was 19. i just want pennsylvania to have leadership in the future that is working for them, and i promised to do that every day. thank you. [applause] >> thank you. >> i would love to follow up, thank you. [applause] >> a thank you. thank you to both candidates, to everyone who put this together. >> penns
by physicians. it is the heart of the american practice of medicine. the most famous hospitals in america. either started out or still are physician-owned. like the mayo clinic, john hopkins in baltimore. in my state, md anderson. not every state allows physicians to have an interest, an equity/ownership interest in hospitals. in those states that do they have the highest quality rating, patient satisfaction ratings. i am blessed in my congressional district to have a number of physician-owned hospitals. i have been treated in the hospitals. i have gone to the emergency rooms in the hospitals. my mother has been in one of these. without exception. the experience has been as good as it can be given the situation that resulted in it. the pending bill for some reason is punitive. on these types of facilities. would at a minimum prevent their expansion. in all probability cause a number of them to close. if you read the language that my amendment strikes it is punitive and nature and very restrictive. some limited exceptions where you can appeal to the secretary of hhs. if we're going to have
and happiness belongs to america. that if i am a woman from it all i do not like choice. i enjoy being a muslim woman does not pursue happiness and these were also issues that i responded to when i was writing. >> host: in one of the reviews of the book, they made the argument that perhaps your mother ayyad delusion about herself, about the life she created, the illusion that you got sucked into it in many different ways and became a part of it is a metaphor for the illusion of iran, a country that has an image of itself and what it wishes to be and thinks it is deserving to be bought is constantly underperforming. is that what you had in mind? >> guest: i knew that in writing this book i was also responding to different feelings and emotions about iran about the concept what home is or was. but people who read the book always had insight that you necessarily did not have. i do think that we have an illusion of the past and if like my mother we become frozen and do not have a critical and dynamic conversation with the past we will never leave that past. we can change regimes every ten years and
of this nra is the customer may not pick his chicken. america is about consumer choice and he imitated for the justice how the chickens were selected in the name of efficiency and the justices laughed. then when they laughed. >> host: one of the things the nra forbade was actually looking at a chicken and say i want that one. >> guest: and you could not do that in in a time when there was tuberculosis and not to antibiotics picking you're own chicken was important for health reasons. you don't want a sick chicken and this is known as the sick chicken case and the justices sided with the shecter brothers, what about the commerce clause and so on. and there was a lot of discussion around that. and it was an enormous advantage big test if ms. nra had stood in we would have a kind of intervention that we have in agriculture in business so it it should america forever. the never talk back cap and in the english people saw that right away. nra killed and 20 minutes, in america there were show star if they did not know what two say and the result was various. >> host: one of the interesting s
the states and that means any city or state in america if her opinion is upheld what can ban all guns in the jurisdictions. and if her opinion is not reversed that is what will happen in america and i would note the supreme court in ruling on that case, the hell lowercase but told clearly for the first time the second amendment is an individual right and applied to the district of columbia which effectively band firearms in the district of columbia and they said that was not constitutional, that the citizens of the district have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms and it cannot be eliminated so if the sotomayor opinion is upheld i can only say the second amendment be viable in the district of columbia and now the other cities and states in the country. madam president, with regard to the takings case one of the most significant taking cases in recent years she ruled against a private land owner who had his property taken and he intended to build a pharmacy. a developer working with the city utilized the power of the city to attempt to extort money from the individual so that
-span. this is c-span, public affairs programming, courtesy of america's cable companies. up next, we have president obama on a recent unemployment figures and then senator mel martinez announces his resignation. >> yesterday, the full senate confirmed judge sonia is a full supreme court justice. -- judge sonia sotomayor as a full supreme court justice. then, enter the home of the country's highest court. >> and now president obama on the july unemployment numbers will show a decrease for the first time since april of last year. this is about five minutes. >> good afternoon, everybody. i would like to see it -- say a few words about the state of our economy and we're doing to put americans back to work and build a new foundation for growth. last week, we received a report on america's gross domestic product. today, we are pointed in the right direction. we pull the financial system back from the brink and the markets are restoring value to the 401k's. we have reduced the home payments on mortgages, making homes more affordable. we have helped to revive the credit markets and open up loans
of the national security interests of america right now? >> i would feel more comfortable talking about this but i have more information on their contract. yes, sir. >> the president made a comment about that -- that the republican leadership made the decision -- [laughter] [inaudible] he didn't have a cross word either. i thought he -- >> that's what happens when he stuck with a cross word [laughter] >> it's an easy one to date. [laughter] >> it is thursday, a little tougher puzzle. >> it's august. >> the president said the republican leadership made the decision to oppose him. is this his political analysis or is this what he -- i mean is this like he knows this as a fact? >> i think it's -- i think it is a deducing from comments that he's read -- i think if you read comments in today's paper you might come to that conclusion. >> said he doesn't feel like the republican leadership is stealing from -- he doesn't fairly any more? >> i think there is a difference between some members of the republican party. i did you have seen members the president of dimensions that are -- >> he singled out repub
in america, and freedom of speech means to express yourselves, but if somebody else wants to express themselves, to have quiet and decorum and civility so we can exchange ideas. there are a great many subjects of importance in washington today. we're working very hard on global warming, the president has put immigration on the agenda for later this year, we are working on judicial nominations and confirmation of supreme court justice sotomayor. we are working hard on the issue of economic recovery, and there are already some positive signs. but it is too early with less than six months on a two-year program to really know. the preliminary indications are positive. but they are tentative. it is understandable that there is a lot of concern in america about what is happening in our country because of the loss of more than 4 million jobs. people are losing their health insurance. there is uncertainty of the future, concern about the large deficit, concern about the large national debt. after being in touch with 12 million people in pennsylvania for meetings, calls, letters, there is a l
the power to communicate and hold our leaders accountable. we must educate america. we must take america back. thank you very much. . . >> after the 2008 election, our friends on the left had some helpful advice for us. move to the left. it was similar to the advice after goldwater lost, after clinton won in 1992. the other team cheerfully advises us to stop talking about taxes, nobody cares about taxes and more. that reminds me of the scene late in committee were the bad guys as to the heroine, put down a gun and we will talk. [laughter] and that the hair -- and if the hero is a foolish, the movie goes on for 45 more minutes. [unintelligible] our coalition holds together because everybody here and everybody in washington, who becomes a tea party activists, are there around the table, for different reasons but they are all there because on the issue that news there but and that brings them to politics, they want one thing from the federal government, they want to be left alone. [applause] taxpayers, don't raise my taxes. businessmen and women, don't regulate my job in business out of exi
to think about the fact that we have a network of 37,000 retail outlets. america loves them. we cannot just sell stamps at those outlets. stamps and mail, there is a substitution factor going on. i look at -- i look around the world. in australia, if you want to renew your driver's license, you go to the post office. if you are in japan and you want to buy insurance, more likely than not, you go to the post office. i think we have done a good job of trying to sell malil. i think we have begun to scratch the surface. >> thank you. senator mccain. >> mr. potter, the belief that we should implement many of the recommendations of the gao in their report that mr. herr just mentioned? >> yes, i do, senator. we have been working very diligently to implement much of what he talked about. if you look back in the year 2000, we had 446 mail processing plants. today we have 355. we have taken out over 20% of our mail processing plants. >> how much has your volume dropped? >> our volume has dropped a similar amount. if you look at where we were -- at where we are now obverses last year, our volume is do
, into the home to the -- to america's highest court, to those only accessible by the nine justices. the supreme court, coming on c- span. >> up next, a look at health insurance companies. this portion of washington journalism out 30 minutes. continues. >> keith epstein with business week magazine has the cover story, health reform, why insurers are winning. i want to show a little from the inside and read some of what you wrote. as the health reform shifts from a vacationing washington to c congressional districts, more of the battle is over. likely victors such as wellpoint and unitedhealth. no matter what specifics emerge in the voluminous congress the insurance industry will emerge more profitable. how did it get to this point? >> guest: we've heard about townhall meetings being disrupted and ads suggesting insurance companies are like sharks and counter ads, you know, suggesting the insurance companies are the villains. meanwhile in washington the industry has been very hard at work providing numbers, data, meeting with bluedogs, really taking more of a partis partici role. >> inside the l
conversations that with this book is the word openness the remember again and again in america and the world how you talk about the need to keep our systems come a channels open for communication could you drop day should draw that the mount a little more scanning back a little further and looking up the range of challenges that we face? what does it mean to be open and adaptive in this environment? >> many things the least of which is the need for an informed american society one of the major obstacles is inhibiting the intelligent posture of america in the world is the lack of understanding for the american people. it is easy to blame our leaders and i have my share of blaming leaders but it is easier in a democracy when you have the public that is very uneducated about the world for an informed about basic facts, history, geography, the next president has an enormous educational role to play. he has to convey to american-built the notion the specific problems of russia, china, ga., are interrelated with the reality of a consequence at all of humanity experiences and then on top of it global p
and the building. the supreme court is home to america's highest court, the first sunday in october on c- span. >> health and human services secretary kathleen says that passing health care legislation without senator kennedy will make things more difficult. this is less than 20 minutes. >> president obama is the administration is represented by secretary sibelius and the deputy secretary ms. green lead. we are very happy to have you here. i would like to congratulate you for picking what we think is the premier senior wellness center in the district of columbia. [applause] we also why you to know that it is no coincidence that we made this investment here. this award, ward 4, had the highest percentage of seniors in the entire district of columbia. we are 80,000 strong here. in our senior residents are, as he met many of them in your discussions, about 38% male, 62% female. our residents, for the most part, live on their own. they live on their own homes -- they live in their own homes. they have private doctors. they look to our government to make sure that we are providing assistance for ho
declined by 7 million as well. all told, america has 25 million. these are people with no education beyond high school, not working. the total work force is 7 million to 8 million. it looks like we have this enormous supply, but the situation has deteriorated dramatically. teenagers used to work at very high rates, 16 and 17-year olds. the last year has seen a massive decline. roughly speaking, if only 1/4 of the less educated not working or native-born, would it work? throw in a few teenagers, you could throw -- he could replace the whole work force. the other thing that is going on in the u.s. labor market that most people think is equally as troubling, wages and benefits at people on the bottom has deteriorated dramatically. not only are less educated americans working less, they're making less. there are astonishing statistics. let me give you one of my favorites which is very well documented. meat packers, generally done by people without a lot of education. their wages are 45% less today than they were in 1980. for high-school dropouts, wages are about 22%-25% less than they were in
renewing america's purpose july 99 to july of 2000, and in fact it informed the second campaign as well and i think bush did -- have a dance policy agenda with specifics more so than had been the sort of practice at least in our party particularly to the extent he talked about things about being a different kind of republican that, you know, not everybody on my side of the oil was wildly enthusiastic about the defeat could things like a compassionate conservatism, education, immigration, faith based initiatives, all of those sorts of things that had a little bit of an edge and that is why not only did they inform our first work that day -- we knew we had to get them done quickly and when i see president obama tackling health care right away i see a lot of the similarities his popularity is as high as it is ever going to be likewise i assume that is the case generically but some of the scholars here would know better that that is the time to do the things that are the most difficult to do. we lived by absolutely to the extent there were specifics and it lays out a series of principles or
in america. it's my favorite pasta! (announcer) pizza hut. america's favorite for pizza, pasta, and wings. i'll be honest with you... that whole et favre thing was really hard to keep track of. so we had to come up with a system. you're sure? he's coming back! he's coming back. he's coming back. he's coming back. he's coming back. so is it one if retired... two if un-retired? i think it's the other way around. that makes sense. >> matthew berry here from espn.com fantasy. another week and pre-season action. a few things jumped out at me. first-off, d angelo williams continues to look great while jonathan stewart continues to look banged up. you have to move him up in your ranking. i have him now in my top five. looking for a deep sleeper running back. how about glen coffee. a must own. looking great, 129 yards on 16 carries. he can figure in the mix with the 49ers. another back-up running back with even less competition in front of him is cleveland's james davis. the 12 carries for 116 yards including an 81-yard touchdown run. wide receiver troy williamson had a huge game for the jaguars. pa
years and latin america and i can recall vividly the attempts made to help print ballots that were clear or signals for signs to persons who were illiterate as to what the choices might be two political parties but that is apart from people sitting around it tabled with the balance being raised and everybody is examining it, procedures through would find in the united states now to be very tedious but in the case of the first election and in many latin america and countries it was crucial for the accountability because we're all looking forward to these elections and clearly the amount of education about the numbers of physicians to be filled, who is going to be up for election. i asked you first of all, what sort of resources do you or other groups have to make that kind of information available if the 25 states of sudan? that is a daunting figure as one considers all of the differentiations. >> they accuse senator. 10 ti has received a lot of funding from u.s. aid u.s.-made civic education and voter education a priority so we do have lot of resources and research from the focus group i
from having people like you all over america go back and say this recovery might work for us. what see if we can find a way to make and we think it may work for merck huckabee you will start to see that be line ony chart starting to turn and until we get back to the point* it will take to three years at a minimum, we look at prior recessions and we find it can be as long as 38 months before you gain back all the job that you lost. people talk about a v-shaped gourde w shaped got help less. [laughter] that was not a reference. [laughter] that does not mean that i seriously tried tovoid there's too much to look forwarto to look bk. we keep our eyes ahead. we wan to maintain the support the american people who understand that possibly may be at the end of a recessionary period is interesting information but until we put people back in jobs and have more people in jobs than we had before we started, theresident will not think we're successful or have now begun the success of this operation. thank you for the hard vork to do for america and growing small businesses as a fmer small business
medicaid patients. we are getting in that boat in the inner cities or rural america with medicare. it ought to give you some judgment about how much more you want the government to get involved in medicare. with medicaid, -- medicare, not medicaid -- one factor about money not being spent wisely in the united states is the statistic that, and you can get this from an annual study by dartmouth university, the upgraded every year. they have been doing this for two or three decades. if medicine costs were like a war from wisconsin over to washington state and from kansas north to canada, we would save 1/3 of our health care dollars. they would be in the medicare fund and make it last longer than it is. some of those are related to just simple things like how doctors practice medicine in iowa and do a good job of it. people in iowa are healthier than number. the doctor does not send it to the hospital at the job of a hat or a dozen specialists. those are things that really add up on the cost of money. getting back to what you said about taking care of the eight or 10 million people that do not
while main street america is to embrace globalization i brought half a dozen copies with me you can order on the amazon at about $15 if you are on the hill i could give you a copy i want to read a couple of quick exurbs from the foreword written by the former trade representative the cut is it the and it is too modest to do shameless self-promotion i will do with. >> this should re-read by all americans mr. griswold says trade pirogues anxiety more than gratitude that is unfortunate because of foreign investment and with the expansion of trade we will likely still be a third world country today. he confronts protectionism and demolishes the support of argument protection as has relied on see no phobia to carry their agenda. he wears on his sleeve genuine compassion and empathy for the often forgotten consumer and as he so effectively emphasizes protectionism is another tax on working families paid unknowingly. it is a great book full of good arguments that are not super academic but complaining kuwaitis the to understand and easy to understand a great benefits of trade. mr. griswold
's interrogation and detention program. that is what that was. i almost said "america's." looking back will teach people never to play to the edge. will teach people i know the president wants me to do it and the director says it is a good thing and i am capable, but i do not think so. we will teach to mitigate. to a workforce that we need to be vigorous and active. no matter how narrowly defined, this will start pulling threads. you'll have a significant number of agency folks being pulled through this process, in my mind, to no good. the article being released next monday is a 2004 report. i simply make the point that one agency contractor was prosecuted and convicted for his treatment of a detainee, and that career prosecutor is in the district of virginia. career prosecutors in the eastern district of virginia reviewed the report and concluded no further prosecutions are indicated. after that was done, he returned to the agency and we took disciplinary action. one final point i make is that report has been at the hill since 2004 to the senior members of the committee since 2006. why would thi
